    Doing everything right except getting turnovers. But I'll take what they are doing even if it means no turnovers. Even the run D has been wayyyy better than last year. All we need is the D line to keep playing like they have been the last few weeks instead of the first 3-4 weeks and we'll be fine. Very surprising though considering all our CBs except Green have missed time I believe.
    "The way they play offense here is difficult for any quarterback," he said. "Every snap is an incredible decision. They're in a one-back offense, they can't run the ball against certain looks so they have to audible to some kind of a pass or a creative run to get away from trouble.
    "There's never a play in the game where Stafford can just turn around, hand the ball off and catch his breath. Every play he's researching the defense and they throw as much as anyone."

    impressive considering the injuries we've had and the 6th round rookie and career ST players starting. I'm really surprised how high we're ranked in 3rd down % as well, though we'd be way higher

    I'm impressed with the pass and overall defense this year. If our offense steps up we can still contend for things.

    Who woulda thought that the Offense and not the Defense would hold the team back.

    Its time for Linehan to go, his play calls (even last year) have been horrendous. They make no in-game adjustments, and are so predictable on offense. When I can predict what we are going to do from my couch, imagine how obvious it is to Defensive Coordinators.

    our turnovers are not there, but the problem is we needed this out of the defense last year when our offense was going great. Now our offense cant get 10 points on the board.

    Like everyone said we just have to start forcing some turnovers. You can only hold an offense down for so long without getting an INT or fumble of some sort.

    We need to stop opposing teams on 3rd down.

    if we stop opposing teams on third down and score every time we possess the ball, we might stand a good chance at winning the game!

    You know, beyond just the turnovers, punting the ball is a real drive killer

    The team is giving up 25 points a game…that’s not very good.
